“Raw emotion, nonstop action, and relentless pacing makes Backlash another one-night read from Brad Thor.” —The Real Book Spy
#1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author Brad Thor is back with his most gripping thriller yet!
In ancient texts, there are stories about men who struck from the shadows, seemingly beyond the reach of death itself. These men were considered part angel, part demon. Their loyalty was to their families, their friends, and their kings. You crossed these men at your peril. And once crossed, there was no crossing back.
They were fearless; men of honor who have been known throughout history by different names: Spartan, Viking, Samurai.
Today, men like these still strike from the shadows. They are highly prized intelligence agents, military operatives, and assassins.
One man is all three.
Two days ago, that man was crossed—badly. Now, far from home and surrounded by his enemy, Scot Harvath must battle his way out.
In the most explosive novel Brad Thor has ever written, page after captivating page of action, intrigue, loyalty, and betrayal will keep you hooked until the very last sentence.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Brad Thor fans can let out that breath they’ve been holding in since the cliff-hanger conclusion of 2018’s Spymaster, but even if this is your first meeting with ex-SEAL Scot Harvath, it’s easy to get swept up in Backlash’s survival-and-revenge story. As the only survivor on a downed plane in the Russian tundra, Harvath fights both the elements and his enemies to get to the Finnish border, while allies around the globe band together to help get their man out of danger. The explosive action made us feel both the freezing cold and Harvath’s indomitable will.
Thrilling. Touching. Suspenseful. Bad guys get their just desserts.
Plot holes, parts with poor grammar and wording. Something that happened 4-6 chapters previously was suddenly back. At the end some one went from a her to a he with no explanation. Only finished it because I was on a long flight with nothing better to do
This was the best book I have read in a long time and hit home for me in many ways. For a retired Navy CPO who spent a lot of time with some of these units it was very factual! Well done!
